Submit your abstract
The programme committee is currently looking for abstracts and would like to encourage you to submit your extended abstract for the 2022 conference. Real case studies from Norwegian waters are encouraged, where new technology has been applied such as hi-res seismic acquisition, processing and imaging tools, OBS, machine learning, neural networks, AI and new/innovative ways of interpreting a complex diversity of data. Abstracts with examples of geophysical methods used outside the oil and gas area, such as for CCS, mining, engineering, or monitoring of natural systems are also of interest. Contributions from a diverse mix of oil companies, service companies and universities/institutes are welcome.
